Subject: About the title
I regard a title as a mere distinguishing mark, a brand, a label, a something by which the book may be called when spoken of—nothing more. --Dewar, Birds of the Plains, 1906.

There are 40 essays in the book, the titles of the first ten are:

I. Doves
II. The Occupations of Animals
III. Green Parrots
IV. The Tailor-Bird
V. Tails
VI. The King-Crow
VII. Concerning Cats
VIII. A Little Nursery and its Occupants
IX. The Survival of the Unfit
X. Cock Robin's Murderer

---

Two pages of the book, pp. 254 and 255, are missing. They come between pp. 329 and 330 of the PDF. (There are two other copies of the book on the Internet Archive.)
